Default Mystery Person

Can anyone out there tell me who Mike McGear is/was? He surfaced during the height of Beatlemania. P.S. In those days, the word "gear" meant hip, with it, in, etc. It was a compliment to be "gear," and that's the origin of this man's stage name.
(Did I give too much information?)

I seem to remember that he was Paul McCartney's brother. He had a group of his own, but he changed his name so he could try and make it without everybody knowing he was the brother of a Beatle. He ended up being more famous for hanging around and taking pictures of The Beatles in the early years. I actually met him at a Beatlefest convention a few years ago and got him to autograph one of his picture books.

The other bloke that used to be in that group now lives down the road from me, apparently. Didn't Paul write their biggest hit?

Apparently you're not a big Spice Girls fan! Aren't they broken up yet... I haven't heard anything from them for a couple of years. But then again I'm not exactly a fan either.

No, I'm no fan, believe me! I don't exactly know what they're doing right now, it's a fair bet it's not music though........"music". They make me so sick.
